The Las Vegas Raiders announced two signings Thursday, one of which is a familiar face around team facilities.

Keelan Cole Sr. has re-signed with the Silver and Black. Terms of the deal were not reported.

In 2022 with the Raiders, Cole started three games and played in 14, recording 10 receptions for 141 yards and one touchdown. Since entering the league as an undrafted free agent in 2017 with the Jacksonville Jaguars, he has caught nearly 200 receptions for just over, 2,800 yards.

Cole is the fourth wide receiver the team has signed this offseason. Along with Jakoki Meyers, Phillip Dorsett, and Cam Sims, the Raiders also signed two tight ends to replace the recently-traded Darren Waller.

On the defensive side of the ball, the team signed unrestricted free agent Duke Shelley. The terms of the deal were not released.

Last season, the 26-year-old cornerback set career highs in tackles (30), interceptions (1) and passes defended (eight). Since entering the league in 2019 as a sixth-round selection by the Chicago Bears, Shelley has started 11 games, recording 80 tackles.
